Chargers re-signed RB Austin Ekeler to a four-year, $24.5 million contract.
Ekeler was scheduled for restricted free agency. The deal contains $15 million guaranteed and makes Ekeler the clear No. 1 RB for the Chargers. The Melvin Gordon era is over. Ekeler has averaged a robust 4.8 yards per carry during his three seasons with the Chargers, but his pass-game ability has been the true game-changer. Overall, Ekeler caught 92-of-108 targets for 993 yards and eight scores in 2019, averaging an elite 9.2 yards per target. He's one of the league's premier backs in all areas of the game and should be an early-round pick next August. Ekeler is just 24 years old and is now signed through 2023. Mar 06 2:07 pm (EST)
